You've watched a 55 min video in 20 min?!

That's the kind of thing that makes me glad I finally picked up programming.

m$ put annoying roadblocks in the way of progress that wastes tons of my time trying to bypass.

not very interested in what they have to say right now.

the obvious solution is to give them the finger and switch permanently to linux of course.

Intel also make a nice C++ compiler and codeblocks is turning into a fairly nice IDE.

It's not about ms or visual studio. c++ amp will be open source.
That's a pretty radical change in policy. You could give them credit for that.

As for the benefit of having a single exe make the best of any config without upper limit, and without having to code the adaptiveness myself, sounds good to me!

@Paunescudanutz: use 'admin' like anybody else and you'll be safe. Best pw there is!

@nik - yes, thanks.

I switched hosting provider & haven't configured the message boad yet.

should probably take out the link until it's live again.

@garp - yes. a lovely time saving optimisation on a flawed operating system.

need to go speak to them next week & see if I can get their pos to do what I want it to. probably not, the cool bits are locked down for m$ internal access only.

You say it's flawed, but I use Windows every day, all day, all night, and have done so since windows V3. All the software I love works fine, it's really cheap to buy. I haven't had a blue screen once using Windows 7.

It might have flaws, but I really can't see them. Can you elaborate on the flaws? I'm interested to hear what these flaws are from your point of view. Cheers.

it is not obvious how to render an application window offscreen & use that as a texture in a DirectX application.

I have a workaround but its not ideal.

I need offscreen rendering of windows to render webpages as textures for use in our gfx engine.

M$ can obviously do this because their desktop is a DirectX application and it renders windows that are not actually on it - they're just textures.

If I can't access the same interface they're using, that's anti-competitive.

I can do what I want on Linux so for the time being at least, it's better. It doesn't lock up either.

I have no idea about your programming issue.

But, why should they be "competitive"? I never understood this. It's Microsoft's OS, they can do what they want with it.

Take for example, the pathetic EU govt fining Microsoft hundreds of millions of Euro's because Vista came bundled with IE. So what? I would have told the EU to go fuck itself, if I was Microsoft. It's Microsoft's OS. Stop selling Windows in Europe, and see how quickly they would change their mind.

Microsoft comes bundled with a Calculator application. They never bothered to make Microsoft remove this so it was "competitive" to people making calculator apps. Pathetic.

Rant over.

>>It doesn't lock up either.

Lol, that's utter crap. Windows is more stable than "linux". Before you snort in contempt, I've been using Linux for about 15 years. I've installed so many distros, I can't even remember them all. I've never found one to be stable, on any hardware. Something always fucks up or some device isn't supported properly and you end up having top wrestle with it. I haven't had a blue-screen or lock-up for years on a Windows machine.

So you're crunching my thread about a potential breakthrought in parallel programming down to that one problem you have with directX? That's nice.
I'm surprised of this lack of nuances coming from you, especially since when someone adopts the same attitude toward max and autodesk, you're the first to readjust the course.
And if you're that pissed with ms, you should be glad of their change of policy.
